Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie just won a Hugo, which I’m thrilled about! It’s an excellent book that fans of sci-fi should definitely read. Here’s the two sentence plug before I blabber about it at length :

Ancillary Justice is about an AI on a quest for revenge with a haughty time-lost noble in tow. Even against the backdrop of a conspiracy to Kill The Ruler Of The Galaxy, Leckie manages to focus the narrative on interesting and driven characters set in a fully realized, breathing, changing, world.

It’s times like I wish I could write better because I honestly think Ancillary Justice was my favorite book this year (even though it came out October 2013). and I want to convince y’all to read it. More fleshed out thoughts under the read more!

I’ve started to read Ready Player One and I’m deeply disappointed. It’s the shallowest nerd wish fulfillment fantasy ever, complete with a Bill Gates-esque hero-god. Basically, Richard Dawkins Writes Sci Fi. I thought it was one of the acknowledged…

Sorry, I didn’t realize that was a tumblr faux pas. Sincerely. You’d think I’d have caught on to the rules by now, right?
Anyway, I’m still reading—maybe 25% in—bc the world building is compelling and believable, so I might change my mind.
It’s odd that virtual reality never really caught on widely, given how popular a prediction for the future it was in speculative lit. Second Life and such aside.

While tagging your hate is a faux pas I do think that person could have maybe been less awful about it? Like their post and tags just kept swearing at you.

Nope, it’s still a terrible book. 

Ready Player One is a garbage book that’s both blithely racist and transphobic. Not only that, it makes the mistake of conflating 80’s geek nostalgia with things such as “settings”, “plots”, or “characters”. Friggin’ Harry Potter’s wizard chess scene from the first book has more 80’s geek nostalgia than the entire book put together.

You would think a book that bills itself as National Treasure, But For Nerds would have some interesting puzzles to solve, artifacts to lift out of a trapped plinth, enigmatic riddle guardians to fool, etc. NOPE. The ‘puzzles’ in the book consists of rote repetition and memorization of pop culture instead of something that could conceivably require ‘logical thought’ or ‘lateral thinking’ . Here’s what lateral thinking is in the book : being able to say every line of a 2 hour movie word for word.

the entire book is techno-libertarian “geeks are the REAL ubermensch” wankery that other authors like Cory Doctorow loves and i cannot believe that it’s as popular as it is.

treesahquiche replied to your photo “i fucked up”

Ooooh were you making steamed eggs, custard, or…?

Custard! Making it for a friend who’s just came back to America. I was lifting the ramekins out of the hot water bath with potholders and slipped. Much sadness all around.

bildungsromantics:

i’ve had multiple dudes on okcupid ask me what my “heritage” is, and it’s like, are they literal white supremacists, are they trying to make sure all my percentages of white european are in accordance with their preferences, or … what?

the most benign interpretation i can think of is that they’re just like “is she irish?”

like i know a lot of white people use the term “heritage” in the lens of “i am half irish quarter swedish quarter danish” as opposed to stuff like blackness in which case the term “race” is used.

probably just seen as a low-effort ice breaker. “i’m nine tenths german!” and then you can talk about how you’ve never been to germany or something
